The biggest New Year’s Eve 2016 celebration is the famous Times Square ball drop, which is available to watch via live stream around the world. In fact, we’d say that the live stream of the Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration is probably a hundred times better than attending it in person, mostly because you won’t be packed into a small area and surrounded by a million people who are all unable to use the bathroom. The Times Square ball drop has been an annual celebration since 1907, at which point it became the symbol of celebrating the end of the year and the beginning of a new one. It’s the site where multiple TV networks choose to host their New Year’s Eve, but none are as famous as ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve, hosted by Ryan Seacrest since Dick Clark’s death.
A live stream of the New Years Eve 2016 festivities is a great thing to put on the TV if you’re having a party, that way you can stay connected to the insanity that’s going on around Times Square.
